Nice! I read where Bob had trouble getting into the Nashville scene because it was assumed he would play busy R&B lines instead of basic root-5 stuff.

Hey Ian – Bob was a versatile player indeed. My favourite Babbit story is that he used to learn when he was young by listening to the radio and trying to cop what he was hearing on his upright!
